    Absolutely disgusting.

    White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of “sanctuary cities” to retaliate against President Trump’s political adversaries, according to Department of Homeland Security officials and email messages reviewed by The Washington Post.

    Trump administration officials have proposed transporting detained immigrants to sanctuary cities at least twice in the past six months — once in November, as a migrant caravan approached the U.S. southern border, and again in February, amid a standoff with Democrats over funding for Trump’s border wall.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco was among those the White House wanted to target, according to DHS officials. The administration also considered releasing detainees in other Democratic strongholds.

    White House officials first broached the plan in a Nov. 16 email, asking officials at several agencies whether members of the caravan could be arrested at the border and then bused “to small- and mid-sized sanctuary cities,” places where local authorities have refused to hand over illegal immigrants for deportation.

    Why not? It works when you're pandering for votes, but when you're overrun with the immigrants you're supposedly trying to help, sanctuary cities don't look so good.

    I'm not sure why you think it's absolutely disgusting since this is where they will best fit it.

    Call me crazy but I think they are probably heading to sanctuary cities / states in any case :).

    How would it be an abuse? Wouldn't it be the best place for immigrants to go with the least amount of hassle from the local authorities? In fact, have a couple of busses stop by Nancy Pelosi's house on the way there.

    It's literally there clear as day, why it's an abuse...
    That is literally using gov't resources just for political gain, no concern for the immigrants, the cities, the citizens. Just more pettiness from this administration.

    Abuse of power. They are being released right? Do you prefer they get shipped out to Montana? How about Idaho?

    How about the administration stays consistent with the :mad:ery? If you are literally arresting parts of a caravan you are literally demonizing, just to place them in areas of political opponents to make points... It's an abuse of power. It also demonstrates a complete lack of concern for anyone involved. Just like the separated children, more people used as pawns for political points.

    Really?o_O If the intent is to arrest person from the migrant caravan that you've demonized, invented B.S. about carrying disease and there might be terrorists hiding amongst them. You really think the administration wasn't going to go all out screaming about how the migrants somehow magically made into the U.S. and were in sanctuary cities?

    Really? o_O

    I may not agree with the concept of sanctuary cities but that doesn't mean I tolerate spiteful corrupt action on the part of the White House, treating immigrants like they're pawns and retaliating against the "other side". No one should be okay with this kind of behavior.

    Is it not the safest place to drop off the immigrants? That is after a while they are supposedly wanted
    --- Post Merged, Apr 11, 2019 ---
    Hence the reason I said it’s obvious to everyone else

    Once again 'nah'.

    When you specifically seek to arrest a specific group of people, only to use them for political gain. That should be obvious. And as stated, ...absolutely disgusting.

    Who are they specifically seeking to arrest that not already in custody or detained?

    From the OP:

    White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of “sanctuary cities”

    Trump administration officials have proposed transporting detained immigrants to sanctuary cities

    Keep going...

    I.E. they were looking to gather more caravan people to bus in to specific areas, that weren't going along with the administrations schemes.

    --- Post Merged, Apr 11, 2019 ---

    Yeah, yeah I know... Obama. That took longer than usual for you to get there.

    I believe the caravan people were welcomed to get to the border and apply to get in.
